The weekend activities are sure to be a huge attraction and well worth a visit.
This year’s ‘Gathering of the Clans’ 3 day festival, held during National Heritage Week, comprises scenes of everyday life in Medieval Loughrea, as well as being jam-packed with fun events and performances for the whole family to enjoy.
Thanks to partnership with The Heritage Council, Irish Walled Towns Network and Galway County Council, all events on Saturday and Sunday are free of charge. With events ranging from a medieval clan banquet at the Lough Rea Hotel on Friday, 28th August, engaging talks, an exciting digital 3D model of Medieval Loughrea, a special commemorative coin and traditional games, there is something to keep the whole family entertained.
Experience all that the middle ages has to offer at Loughrea Walled Towns Day on Sunday 30th 1-5pm, with a guided walk about Loughrea, the grand can parade, living history demonstrations, circus skills workshops, hands on crafts, falconry demonstrations, a food and craft market and lots more.
